The Reluctant PornographerBruce Labruce
︎ Add to Bag
The Reluctant Pornographer is a star’s memoirs so there is not much time for self-analysis between descriptions of getting it on for the camera and facing a film festival question and answer session. Readers familar with La Bruce’s films will recognize both his tone and myth-making project in this bitter and often hilarious collection of laptop confessions on the making and promotion of Super 8 1/2 and Hustler White. It is the cry of a poor, young farmboy who dreamt of becoming a true homosexual, but finds himself struggling against the tyranny of political correctness, feminist orthodoxy, and a white-bread gay community.
